Country Artist Opens Up About The Day He Thought He Was Going To Lose His Wife And Baby

Mo Pitney took to Instagram recently to reflect on the birth of his daughter one year after she was born.

When his wife's water broke a year ago, Pitney had no way of knowing at the time that an emergency was developing.

When they arrived at the hospital, they quickly learned that Emily, Pitney's wife was suffering from a prolapsed cord -- Which can cause serious complications.

Emily was rushed to the Operating Room for an emergency c-section. Looking back, Pitney recalls there were moments during that frightening experience he thought he was going to lose both his wife and their daughter.

Fast-forward to today, and Evelyne, the couple's daughter is happy, healthy, and thriving.
